A couple of days ago, all my backups generated by XCloner disappeared from the
backup folder on 2 of my blogs(1 WP Multisite and 1 WP single site).

I have Better WP Security installed on one of the blogs and I was warned by
e-mail that files had been deleted.

All my backups (I had many ones, maybe 50) were gone!

Surprisingly, the time and date of the deletion corresponded to the last backup
time and date.

Could it be that XCloner deleted the files or could there be kind of a bug in
the cron task?

It was the first time it happened to me since I had been using XCloner but
unfortunately it happened again today on one of the 2 blogs (WP Multisite).

Any idea?

XCloner only deletes files if the “Delete backup older than ” the number of days indicated is being enabled, so try and check that and follow as well the cronlog output from XCloner.
